Description

This collection contains issues of the Tufts Observer and web crawls documenting its web presence. It covers university news, sports, and events, primarily on the Medford campus. It also includes editorials, announcements and calendar items of events, and nationally syndicated comics. Volume numbering begins with vol. 1 in 1969, and varies in frequency. Sometimes a volume covers one semester, and other times one academic year.

The Observer replaced the Tufts Weekly as the weekly student-published newspaper in 1969. In 1973 "Tufts" was added to the name. It is the official newspaper of record for Tufts University. The Observer receives funding from the student activities budget.

In December 2001, the Observer changed format from a full-size newspaper to a newsmagazine. It continues to be published each Friday during the academic year.

Arrangement
